2012-03-07 21:32

London - Apple on Wednesday unveiled a new iPad with a higher resolution display and an updated version of the Apple TV box used to stream movies, TV shows and other content from the internet to TV sets.

The new iPad screen features 264 pixels per inch, providing the best display ever on a mobile device, Apple executives said during a product presentation in San Francisco broadcast live to reporters in London.

The new iPad - the third version of the touchscreen tablet computer introduced in April 2010 - also features a five-megapixel camera, a faster processor and high-definition video recording.

It will go on sale on March 16 at the same price as the previous models, which start at $499 for the most basic iPad.

Apple said the new iPad will also feature faster 4G LTE connectivity.

"Apple has its feet firmly planted in the post-PC world," Apple chief executive Tim Cook said, adding that "the iPad is reinventing personal computing" and spearheading the "post-PC revolution".

The new Apple TV box, which Apple said features a streamlined new user interface, will sell for the same $99 price as the previous model.

Apple released the first version of Apple TV in 2007 but it has never really caught on with the public.
